contractors 'attacking own vehicles' in Pakistan
sold the fuel, now they're covering up the crime
Hundreds of tankers and trucks have
been left stranded on highways and depots across Pakistan, with little
or no security.
Taliban militants have regularly been targeting the convoys, even when
they are heavily protected.
But many believe it is not just the militants who pose a security
threat to the convoys.
The owners of oil tankers being used to supply fuel to Nato in
say some of the attacks on their convoys are suspicious.
They say there is evidence to suggest that bombs have been planted in
many of vehicles by the "Nato contractors"
- individuals or companies who have been contracted by Nato to supply

"This happened in the area of Paiyee, when he was putting the bomb
under the vehicle."
"At that time, a few men also opened fire on the tankers. The deputy
later told the police
that he had been told to plant the bomb by the contractor."
Dost Mohammad said the contractor had apparently sold off the fuel
"Only 2,000 litres from the
original 50,000 litres had been left in the tanker to cover up the
crime," he said.
Dost Mohammad said it is a win-win situation for the contractors.
"If an old vehicle is burnt,
Nato gives them money for a new vehicle.
In addition, they receive
compensation for all the fuel lost as well."
If an oil man is involved, you can bet they're screwing the US
That's why oil men start wars -
because both sides in the war need fuel
and the Bush bastards are right there so sell it - to both sides.
